523 Códice Fray Gregorio de Zuola (1645?-1709). Sixteen songs that originated as voices of polyphonic pieces in Spain. They were passed around Spain and the colonies in oral tradition, and transcribed by Fray Zuola in the 17th century. Zuola was a priest working near Cuzco, who wrote down 17 part-songs that had been circulating in an oral tradition. To 16 of them he set lyrics of secular Spanish poetry of high quality. For the 17th he used a version of the Latin Credo. He only named the composer of two pieces: Tomás de Herrera, and Manuel Correa. It contained about 500 pages. The Codice was rediscovered in a Buenos Aires library about 200 years later, and the music has been reconstructed by numerous scholars. Contents include titles: Cachua a Duo y a quatro con violines y bajo al nacimiento de Christo Nuestro Señor. Cachua a voz y bajo al nacimiento de Christo nuestro señor.
